    Of course theres going to be the nagging injuries that all backs endure and play with. Im talking about injuries that cause players to miss games. Maybe he could play anywhere,however i still dont think he measures up to todd gurley or keith marshall. Of course im biased. Be interesting to see where montee ball winds up playing on sundays. I think he was projected as a late first round/early second round pick. Of course every draft analyst will tell you something different. The falcons are gonna need a back with michael turner starting to show his age.

The SEC coaches, and particularly Saban, have been successful in getting through to the RB prospects that they will have a longer shelf life in the NFL if they're not having to carry the ball 95% of the running plays. Once the guys realize this, they become very team-oriented and supportive of each other. It's a breath of fresh air, compared to all the prima donna acts on other teams when the guy who thinks he's the "featured back" isn't getting the carries he feels he deserves...
    I have really enjoyed watching Mark celebrate with Trent, Trent celebrate with Eddie, and Eddie celebrate with TJ when the #2 guy makes a big play.

    We have no idea how Montee Ball would have done at Alabama, but I suspect that he would have done very well.
    Forgive me for not looking it up myself, but when you refer to "yards", are you meaning rushing yards or all purpose yards?

    Either - he had more of both.

    Glad that I was wrong - Montee won the Walker award. Well deserved.
